Too Much Leaping, Not Enough Centering --- Day 8/6

Walk: A.C.T. (The Great Leap)
Distance: 4.3 miles, small yoga


BD Wong, Tim Liu, Arye Gross, Ruibo Qian in Lauren Yee's
                 The Great Leap at A.C.T.

Sadly BD Wong, one of Ciwt's favorite actors, had an understudy playing his part in The Great Leap today. And the understudy flubbed his lines at least three times Ciwt caught.

So, that is the bad news about Ciwt's play experience this afternoon.  The medium news is the play is okay(ish).  Yee displays a great understanding of the game of basketball so the repartee is right on, but she takes a shot at coupling that with 1.Tiananmen Square, 2. Mao's Great Leap Forward, 3. a dead mother, and 4.  teenage angst.  Even one of those couplings might have been over Yee's head, but all four makes for many attempts but few shots through the net.

The good news was the economy of the stage set.
